Ask Charlie Event: Dover Town Hall


It was great to answer local people's questions at the 'Ask Charlie' event at Dover Town Hall. Top of the agenda was the future of our Port and a fair share of healthcare in Dover and Deal but we questions were answered on a whole range of topics. It was a brilliant question evening and people let me know their strength of feeling towards getting a community say and investment in our Port, as well as protecting our health services. I was joined by NHS and Port representatives on the platform. Over 250 attended and people told me they got a lot out of the event.

After the Q&A session, it was great to join friends at Dover's first ever micro pub, Rack of Ale. There were a great selection of ales and even better company. The pub is just off the Dover High Street on Park Place and we chatted with landlord, Steve Jenkins. Micro-pubs are a success story for our pub trade, keeping it small and simple. It's great to see the Rack of Ale doing so well and it's well worth a visit!
